gOS 3.0 goes gold
Good OS (gOS) has achieved a new major release of its Ubuntu-based operating system. Targeting low-powered netbooks, gOS 3.0 integrates closely with Google Gadgets, as well as with Google Mail, Calendar, Reader, News, Applications, and so on.
Good announced gOS 3.0 in August, at the LinuxWorld Expo in San Francisco. The release succeeds a gOS Space release.
The last time we looked at gOS on a netbook, we were pretty horrified, to be honest. No effort seemed to have been made to adapt the heavy, Ubuntu-based OS to the limited resources and small screen of netbooks. In fairness, the product category was quite new at the time. Though we only tried the new release on desktop hardware, it seemed much more polished than earlier releases.
